. when george bush involved us and the supposedly illegal wars in iraq and afghanistan, trampling the constitution as we heard incessantly from democrats, he sought and got in the afghan war and in the iraq war a debate in congress and a vote of authorization. and now what we're hearing from the democrats with utter shameless hypocrisy, this administration is not required to do it. look, the main question that boehner was asking is, is all of this to send a message, to which i would say if you want to send a message, call western union. you don't use tomahawk missiles and engage in war. war is a serious thing. that's why it should be debated in the congress. >> the bush administration also had a united nations resolution as well. juan? >> i think it is very important to say for all of the verbiage we just saw from speaker boehner, speaker boehner, you know, senate majority reid, neither is calling for vote or asking for this to happen. all that you read off, there was no request for speaker boehner for an actual vote. if you can imagine a debate in congress over u.s. military acti

. there are all kinds of safeguards built into this. i remember george bush, when he talked about this program, when it was first revealed by the new york times. he said, when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is kind of the underlying philosophy of this program. talking again -- it always intends to spill over into people thinking, maybe we are monitoring the actual content of their conversations, is we are not all stop this metadata. it is effectively the outside of the envelope that is put in your mailbox. it is that information that is on the envelope. and the date stamp in the postage stamp. would you have people believe that metadata has no significant privacy interest? i would rather, if i had a choice -- i hope not to have either of these choices -- of having every phone conversation i have for 30 days listens to, which is impractical, to have a large number of people doing all my metadata collected for 30 days. i would much rather. >> if it was collected by proctor and gamble or colgate, i would be worried. sometimes, we do not thi

vituperative those times were. and there were people on the left who aimed some of that at george w. bush. admittedly, it's spun out of control now, because these folks are in control of the republican party. so it's at a fevered pitch now. but we've got this mad cycle going where each party -- yes, go ahead. >> but let me challenge that nancy pelosi had an opportunity to jump on george w. bush in the same regard. look at what she did here. she didn't play that game. she shot it down right away. i'm not going to get into delegitimization. let's watch nancy. she did not let them play this game. let's watch her, please. i'm sorry. >> okay, go ahead. >> she has pledged as a speaker she would giver the republicans rights like allowing them to introduce amendments to bills. but she may have trouble reigning in the democrats' appetite for revenge there has already been talk of multiple investigations and impeachment of the president. >> no. impeachment is off the table. >> and that's a pledge? >> well, it's a pledge, yes, it's a pledge. of course it is. it is a waste of time. >> so that's compl

on their taxes. >> up next, george w. bush institute resale the series of discussions looking at immigrants contributions for america. this panel focuses on the economic effects of naturalization. from dallas, this is about one hour. >> a pleasure to be here. i worked for closed with president bush when he was in the white house trying to advance immigration reform in the last battle and so it's a pleasure for me to be back in his beautiful new house, talking about immigration. so thank you to this institute. i want to harken back as we get started to the ceremony that we saw this morning combat incredible moving ceremony because what we're going to talk about here today is not just out immigration is good for america, but have naturalization and citizenship actually even ups the ante and makes immigrants even more beneficial for the united states. to benefit themselves, but it's also a benefit for the country. so the very people we saw this morning when they came in the door, they were great for america but as they went out the door their even more. they will be even more of an asset. we w
serve on that court are people who were appointed by george w. bush to the courts. host: tell us about changes you'd like to make guest: the system certainly is not working very well have a court to that simply uses a rubber stamp and allows for every single request, there is no genuine oversight being conducted. the deeper problem here is that the wrong judgments are being made concerning what is relevant. the statute is clear that in order to collect any information under any circumstances, domestically, that information has to be relevant to the investigation of terrorism by a foreign person. that is why we have the defense department to protect us from actions by foreigners, not actions by americans. there has been a clear line drawn since the 1870's. that the fence department is supposed to defend us from foreign enemies. domestically, we rely upon the fbi and the department justice. notwithstanding, for the past few years, the nsa has gone wild and conducted domestic surveillance on literally every single american, all 320 million people who have a telephone. that is wrong and un
. national security analyst juan zarate is with us. he served for president george bush. good morning. we know it's both specific and vague. we know it sounds like the chatter before 9/11. what is the president getting? what kind of information and what kind of options does he have? >> the president first and foremost will want to know what information we've gotten overnight and over the weekend. intelligence officials and sources are pulsing the system. getting not only their sources but friends and alleyi'llallyies, try to gather as much information. my sources tell me there isn't that much that's new. the president may hear some updates but maybe not that much new. he'll get some updates. >> what's interesting is they say the operatives already dispatched. >> that's right. this is reminiscent the plot in 2010. you recall there was a plot to attack europe sites. people were worried about mumbai-style attacks coming from the al qaeda core. it never materialized. but officials were worried that they actually had operatives in place. that's great concern here. >> this
for diplomacy and pressure is running out when we haven't even tried direct diplomacy. george bush and dick cheney must hear loud and clear from the american people and the congress, you do not have our support and you do not have our authorization to launch another war. martha: that was back in 2011. -- that was back in 2007 and now we are on the cusp of other action going into syria. a younger looking barack obama then senator now president. he always had at the core of everything he talked about, getting out of the wars in iraq and afghanistan. in the state of the union he talked about putting the decade of wars behind us. so what's your reaction to where we are today with syria? >> great disappointment. i supported him as an anti-war candidate. we had a surge in afghanistan. we went into libya. against the very thing he talked about in 2007. he has to inform congress within 48 hours of any kind of military action then he has 60 days after which he would need congressional authorization to continue a war. that started in 1973 and that was violated by bill clinton and ronald reagan. presi
are left over from george bush. bill clinton deregulated the commodities future trade commission. he also got rid of glass- steagall. if he had not gotten rid of that during his time in power, then -- we woulde had not have had the economy that collapsed. exceptas done nothing higher the same people to correct that. republicans could not be happy. there were no no regulations. our economy is only for the billionaires. it is mostly because the democrats do nothing to correct the problems. we will move onto bonnie from idaho. on the republican line. i am a registered republican but i actually vote for the person i would support, hillary clinton. i agree with president obama, i am looking forward to the healthcare that is going to be coming on january 1. i am a registered nurse. i had to quit work because my husband has an illness and i have no insurance. i am looking forward to having insurance. i think president obama has really stepped forward and took on this issue. what is it about the former secretary of state that appeals to you? i like the way she has the world affairs as secretary o
for. george w. bush had done that i think he would've been, we would've been heard cries of impeachment. we had part of our immigration laws suspended by the president. there's just a variety of issues like that where he has gone outside. we have tension with our system, struggles between congress and the president. this one is very -- i think you'll see it continue. but there will be legal cases. >> i'm going to try to bounce around a little bit but again we will get to everybody. >> i was a little concerned to find that you were not in support of making the continuing resolution contingent upon removing what optional spending you move on obamacare. i feel very strongly. i speak from a point of view -- [applause] >> i think they do, too. >> this is not theoretical for me because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for our son to have major surgery. but, you know, what? that's the price i paid for the liberty of my children. i'm self-employed. i understand the consequent of that as i've limited options thanks our government on insurance. i understand that i
they did? george h.w. bush, because about 20 years later, a woman showed up to one of his rallies with a pistol in her purse, and they were doing something they had done for the last 20 years that they had not done the 200 years before then. they were checking purses, too, and they found that. then you say to yourself, maybe what we need, maybe what we need is a racial squeaky fromm, and you start searching through the history books, you find out we had one.in 1901. raise your hand if you remember who was president before theodore roosevelt. no one remembered.a few guys, thank you. put those guys on "jeopardy!" most people forget when roosevelt came into the administration he was vice president and was somewhat who is this guy, this showboat guy from -- fighting wars in cuba. hat elevated him was that he was a very popular vice president for a popular president. it was mckinley.he was killed just after he was reelected. he was at a pan-american exposition, a world's fair in new york state. president mckinley was working the rope line, and a man standing at point blank range at the
, not everybody, but a lot of people would agree that president bush, george w. bush, was obligated to strike back against al qaeda after september 11, 2001. we were attacked, and we had to respond. and i think that most people would say that president obama the very right to launch azeinab badawi race that killed osama bin laden. history and diplomacy co-exist. they interact with each other and they sometimes can complement each other. richard holbrooke, the late richard holbrooke, great american diplomat, i don't think he would have been able to secure the peace in bosnia had we not used force for six weeks to demonstrate to the bosnian-serb army that we were not going to permit them to continue to kill innocent muslims. and it was that use of force that achieved the cease-fire and drove them to the negotiating table where holbrook worked his magic and brought peace to bosnia after five years of war. so there are times when we have to rely on our military and we're fortunate, as all of you know, to have extraordinary young men and women in our military and the army and the navy and the air force
